Silk Retrospect Top in True Black

Silk Retrospect Top in True Black is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shirt! This shirt is super cute, perfect length, drapey (without being unflattering), and great for work or a night out. I wish it wasn't dry clean only I would wear it every day if I could just throw it in the wash!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect essential I think every girl needs a basic and flattering black silk top like this, something that can be worn at the office or dressed up for evening. This top is just that. True to size and hangs beautifully. The split and subtle hi-low hem is what makes this top really flattering. I can't recommend this top enough!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile top I'm always looking for versatile wardrobe pieces that I can use for work but also for a put together look outside of work events. This is the perfect top. Its great quality and can be dressed up or down. I also like the fit as I don't like my clothing too tight plus it drapes nicely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from True black but thin I purchased this top in a size S. I'm 5'5"/115 lbs and I think the XS would have worked better, but I bought this product final sale. Still, because of its slightly oversized fit the shirt is a comfortable go-to for nights out. It is True Black, but the material is thin so you are able to see my bra through it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Basic Silk I was worried since I got this during the "final sale/no return" period but the fit is true to my normal medium and the drape doesn't make me look heavier than normal like some Madewell tops do with the high/low hem. The fabric seems to be substantial enough and it's comfortable to wear. I really like the top and recommend it. My only complaint is like others have said, the zipper is a bit heavy for the silk so it weighs the back down and pulls the neck up higher than I'd like. Nothing that would make me reconsider, especially since I got it at nearly half the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Silk It is one of my favorite shirts. The fabric is nice, the stitching is alright, but the cut is great! It looks fantastic with a skirt & with slim pants. I am buying this in red too!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Silk Retrospect Top This top runs really small. I bought size large and it actually fits like a medium. The quality does not seem as nice as the tunics I have purchased in the past.
